Last year we experienced a lot of our family and friends get married virtually via Zoom. As that trend continues, many are choosing to save money on their weddings and spend more traveling on their honeymoon. 

The U.S. has lots of great destinations for newlyweds to relax by the ocean, explore cities and eat delicious meals.
